At Ashover Brewery we have been producing some of the finest ales with local Derbyshire produce since 2007.
Unlike most breweries we prefer to source our flavourings from local suppliers, home growers and farms as well as our own foraging efforts.
Ashover brewery was founded in 2007 by Roy Shorrock & Kim Beresford at the Old Poets Corner public house in Ashover Chesterfield Derbyshire to bring the local real ale enthusiast something exciting in their local pub. Very quickly after experimenting with flavours and brewing techniques the popularity of the beers grew and so did the range.
Ashover Brewery continued to grow and brew at the Old Poets Corner right up to 2015 when demand got so high that Kim & Roy had no choice than to expand in to an industrial unit in Clay Cross and run efforts at both sites for a short time.
Kim & Roy decided it was time to enjoy retirement and handed the reins to local entrepreneur and publican David Neale.
David, a Sheffield based entrepreneur has a real passion for ‘the romance of real ales’ and cant wait to get stuck in.
What's next for ashover brewery?
David’s vision is to grow the brand with the help of the team and Head brewer Janine Shorrock with new exciting flavours and supply pub’s, micro pubs and bottle to shops UK wide.
